On Monday, October 3rd, the Sun under Libra and the first-quarter Moon under Capricorn stand in a tense square. This suggests a struggle between emotions and ego, made worse by the Moon’s squared aspect with Jupiter retrograde. This celestial standoff indicates that the upcoming strife will shift our perspective on inner wisdom, freedom, and truth.
What might that mean for your sign today?

Even the best-laid plans sometimes crumble, Scorpio. You might as well stop waiting for the serendipitous moment when every atom of the universe aligns just right. If you fail, then you’ll have an even better plan next time. But you have to try.
A fundamental truth has been raised into question in your life, and, understandably, you’ve had a hard time grappling with it. You are a truth-seeker, Sag. So, seek it. The sooner you clear up this confusion, the better.
